Hitta din personliga stil med Your Closet!

We have the honour to, for the second week, present Jessica Johansson from Your Closet. Read about how Your Closet can help you find your personal style.

(Post written in both Swedish and English)

Många är vi som letar efter vår personliga stil och avundas de som ser ut att ha hittat den, de som klär sig i perfektion från topp till tå. Vad är det som gör att de lyckas, men inte jag?

Hemligheten är att veta vad som klär dig och just din kropp och sålla butikerna på de trender du passar i samt undvika de som kanske sägs vara ”hetast just nu” men som inte alls sitter lika bra på dig som på din väninna. Det är helt enkelt fel snitt för din kropp. Våga även hitta och prova nya märken som inte är så stora utan endast designar ett fåtal exemplar av varje plagg, vilket gör att du blir unik i ditt klädval.

Att blanda dyrt med billigt är också något som görs flitigt av de som stoltserar med sin personliga stil då de kan konsten att göra någonting eget och unikt av två olika världar.

Om du är osäker på vart du skall börja eller behöver hjälp med att ta fram rätt silhuetter för din kropp är YourCloset´s tjänst personal shopper (som du nu läser om i senaste numret av CHIC) din hjälpande hand.

Du får professionell hjälp direkt i butiken om vilka snitt som passar din kroppstyp och vilka färger som framhäver ditt bästa jag från vår diplomerade färg- och stilkonsult. Kom ihåg, vi alla är unika!

ENGLISH

Many of us are looking for our own personal style and envy those who seem to have found it, those who spread perfection from head to toe.

The secret is knowing which silhouettes that suits you and your body shape and avoid those that maybe is the “hottest right now” but doesn´t look as nice on you as on your friend. That’s because it’s simply wrong silhouette for your body. Dare to look up and try new brands that´s upcoming where they only design a few copies of each garment which makes you unique in your choice of clothing.

To mix expensive with cheap is also a great tip because it´s creates a unique look from two different worlds.

If you don´t know where to start or need help to find the right silhouette for your body, Your Closet‘s service personal shopper (which you now read about in Swedish fashion magazine CHIC) is your helping hand.

You get professional help in the shop from our certified color and style consultant with what cut suits your body type and what colors that show the best of you. Remember, we are all unique!

Scoop International – A different fashion trade show

Scoop International – A different trade show! Ohhhhhh I would sooooooo like to be there right now! Fashion and art in a heavenly combination.

And it is different – It is exclusive, it is fabulous and it’s in a very interesting setting, showing contemporary fashion alongside cutting edge art within London’s iconic Saatchi Gallery.

In the video below you will see the exhibition from last year.

Amongst the 150 exhibitors from around the world we see both emerging designers as well as established directional fashion designers like VALENTINO, VIVIENNE WESTWOOD, PUCCI, GIVENCHY and KENZO.

And what would this trade show be without a bit of Scandinavia? Designers like BY MALINA (Sweden),  FILIPPA K (Sweden),  MALOU SANDER (Denmark) and MARGIT BRANDT (Denmark) are exhibiting.

I was meant to be in London at the moment for the Pure London Trade show, but as I have decided to change the concept of the business, which means that I wont keep stock any more – I decided I didn’t really need to go to Pure London.

I would not say no to go to the Scoop International though. Even if just to walk around all the gorgeous fashion and the contemporary art that makes this show so different to others.

LOVE ,IT LOVE I,T LOVE IT!

Whitney Houston hittad död på Hotell

Vackra Whitney Houston hittades i badkaret på sitt rum på Beverly Hilton Hotel i natt. Flera olika uttalanden har gjorts om vem som hittade henne och enligt Brittiska  BBC News har polisen sagt att det inte finns några uppenbara tecken på uppsåt.

Bild hittad på photobucket.com

Whitney Houston dog strax före Grammy Awards i Los Angeles. Hon skulle ha deltagit på en pre-award fest i Beverly Hilton Hotel som organiserades av hennes mentor musikproducenten Clive Davis på lördag kväll.

Polisen skickades, men ambulanspersonal fanns redan på hotellet på grund av festen. Försöken att återuppliva henne var utan framgång och hon dödförklarades vid 15:55 lokal tid.

Whitney Houston hade en lyckad karriär under 80-90 talet men hade i åratal kämpat med ett drogberoende.

Whitney kommer bli saknad av många, både fans, familj och kollegor.

Jag vill minnas henne som hon var i “The Bodyguard” och hennes underbara röst när den skvalar ut “I will always love you”!

Kate Moss – The New Face for MANGO

My absolute favourite British model is the gorgeous Kate Moss. Even now at 38 years of age she is looking as stunning as ever.

Now Kate Moss is going to be the the new face for the Spanish label MANGO in their Spring 2012 campaign shot by Terry Richardson.

“I’m really excited to be working with MANGO,” said Moss. “We had a great time and shooting with Terry is always fun.”

The timeless MANGO collection looks absolutely amazing!

Kate Moss – a Croydon born lady was discovered at the age of 14 at an airport in New York and has since appeared an astonishing 30 times on the front cover of British vogue in addition to dozens of other international Vogue covers.

She has done work for the biggest fashion designers and beauty companies in the world like – Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Calvin Klein, Chanel and Rimmel and she has been photographed by the biggest photographers in the business like – Mario Testino, Mario Sorrenti, Steven Klein and Juergen Teller.

Image found on photobucket.com

Some of my absolutely favourite images of Kate Moss must be the ones that started her career of.

Kate Moss was only 16 years old when she was shot by the amazing photographer and former model Corinne Day in a series of black and white photographs called ”The 3rd Summer of Love” for British magazine The Face.

Unfortunately Corinne Day passed away on 27 August 2010 because of a life threatening brain tumor.

Fashion Weeks with YourCloset!

Lovely Jessica from YourCloset writes about the BIG theme in the fashion world right now – Fashion Weeks – and is thereby the first ever (in a long row to come) guest blogger in Meenolas blog. (The post is written in both English and Swedish, For English look at the bottom of the post)

Få har väl missat att modeveckorna och mässorna som redan har sparkats igång är den stora snackisen just nu? Ja, bortsett från Madonnas framträdande under SuperBowl under måndagsmorgonen (svensk tid), som för övrigt stylades av ingen mindre än vårt svenska stjärnskott: stylisten Bea Åkerlund. Vi åker från Stockholm till Köpenhamn, vidare till New York, London, Milano och Paris. Med andra ord, det är mycket mode nu och jag älskar det.
Under Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Stockholm var YourCloset på plats för att få en försmak av vad hösten har att erbjuda oss och designerna som visade upp sina kollektioner gav oss magi, lekfullhet, kvinnlig elegans, klassiska känslor och några tvivelaktiga tankar. Allting finns dokumenterat i form av bilder och recensioner på YourCloset´s hemsida för dig som vill få en inblick i vad som komma skall.
Det är just inblicken som är det bästa med att höstens mode visas nu, att vi redan idag kan planera hur vår garderob ska se ut om sex månader. Hitta dina favoriter, skriv upp och spara och du är väl förberedd när det är dags att rensa butikerna. Lycka till!

 

Few can have missed that all the fashion weeks and trade shows that´s already have begun is the biggest subject right now? Well, apart from Madonna’s appearance during the Super Bowl on Monday morning (Swedish time) of course, where our Swedish stylist Bea Åkerlund was the one who dressed her. But still, we have traveled from Stockholm to Copenhagen and now heading to New York, London, Milan and Paris. In other words, it´s a lot of fashion going on right now and I just love it.

YourCloset was at place during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Stockholm to get a taste of what autumn has to offer us and the designers who showed their collections gave us magic, playfulness, feminine elegance, classics feelings and some questionable thoughts. Everything is documented in form of pictures and reviews on Your Closet’s website for those who want to get a glimpse of what to come.

The best thing why fashion industry is six month ahead of us is that we´re already now are able to plan how our wardrobe should look like in six months from now. Find your favorites to write down and save and you are well prepared when it’s time to clean the stores. Good luck!

Stockholm Fashion Week – The rookies

Yet another fashion event I wont be able to attend this season :( is starting today.

Stockholm fashion week has lots of goodiness to offer but what I get most exited about is the Rookies Showroom 7-8 Februari – Ahhhhhh I really want to be there. All the lovely new designers are showing their gorgeous collections.

Image found on www.stockholmfashionweek.com

The 2012 candidates are -

Alice Fine (Stockholm), www.alicefine.com

Voluptuous Morality (Stockholm), www.voluptuousmorality.com

The Rookies guest designers come from Finland and they are -

design by katri/n, www.designbykatrin.com och R/H, www.rh-the-label.com

All the candidates collections are wonderful but I think my favourite is Alice Fine.

These images are taken from a collection that is called “Blackwork”

- “By borrowing elements from a black and white embroidery technique called Blackwork, Alice Fine creates hand drawn patterns,
directly onto the fabric of the garments in order to gain a unique and skew expression that plays with craft and heritage.”

- “ALICE FINE is a swedish fashion brand that believes in a multifarious fashion world, able to combine industry with splashes of other creative fields. The label creates hand crafted, unique pieces along side a small scale production of ready to wear collections with no attachment to season. ALICE FINE works with different concepts and techniques, to create silhouettes that are organic and sculptural with technical cuts. The exclusive but relaxed elegance is shaped by combining quality, creativity and dignity in the making.”

Lets hope we can convince her to be apart of the new project – Ohhh yes, Sorry – I don’t think I have told anybody about this yet. Well you will have to wonder a bit longer because it’s still a secret. Shhhhhh ;)

Have a great week and to all of you who will be at Stockholm Fashion Week – Enjoy!
